Monteverde is in the Tilaran Mountains of NW Costa Rica on the Pacific side of the continental divide at 1400-1600m (4000-6000ft) elevation. The area has become a prime international ecotourism destination, mainly because of the protection of large areas of cloud forest by private interests. There is now a large infrastructure of tourism related businesses in the region offering everything from hotels and restaurants to guided nature experiences and adventure sports. See “Exploring Costa Rica – 2010-2011” published by the Tico Times https://www.ticotimes.net/ .
